'The Simpsons' marathon continues for its sixth straight day on FXX today amidst a growing chorus of complaints about the network’s decision to alter the format of every episode from the show’s first nineteen seasons. As detailed in Max O’Connell’s recent article on Indiewire, FXX has cropped and stretched pre-HD 'Simpsons' installments from their original 4:3 aspect ratio (the height and width of our old standard-definition TVs) to 16:9 (the dimensions of our new HD sets), apparently in order to make sure that no one suffers through old television episodes with black bars on the sides of the image.
Hello, welcome back to Thanos Thoughts. I am Thanos.
The people of Earth like awarding themselves with trophies. The last two nights, I’ve watched trophy after trophy be handed out to lots of humans. One of these trophies kind of looked like me and the other one didn’t look anything like me. I was hoping someone would award me an Infinity Stone. lol.
Zoe Saldana's Gamora may be considered the deadliest assassin in the galaxy, but we're singing a different tune after seeing this Nebula cosplay. As Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' hits more milestones, the latest being its rise to the No. 1 movie of the summer, more cosplayers are incorporating the film into their works, and one standout is Karin Olava.
Back in April, David Letterman announced that he was retiring as host of ‘The Late Show.’ Almost immediately, the Internet flooded with speculative lists on Letterman’s possible replacement -- which eventually turned out to be Stephen Colbert – and retrospectives on Letterman’s career, with almost all of them focusing

It’s safe to say that ‘Doctor Who’ has never been more popular, with each successive season in the modern era of the program adding fans at what feels like an almost exponential rate. The globalization of its fan base took the world by storm and the show by surprise; with the BBC happily capitalizing on what was once merely the passion of British audiences and small, cultish followings outside of England. But, in the aftermath of the latest season premiere, ‘Deep Breath’, it’s worth asking this question: While we know how those promoting the show feel about its amazing explosion in popularity, how does ‘Doctor Who’ itself feel about it?
Hello, my name is Thanos and I live on a rock in space. I own a chair. I’d like to own the Infinity Stones. There are six of them. They are all I think about, really. I don’t own any though. lol.
It was recently announced that Jenna-Louise Coleman is leaving 'Doctor Who' later this year, following the annual Christmas Special. At that point, she'll have played the role of Clara Oswald (in some iteration) for 25 episodes, making her one of the longest-running companions of the eponymous Doctor. This position has traditionally been filled by a younger white woman, though the Doctor has occasionally taken on a male companion, but while the modern version of the series has seen some diversity, Clara's exit provides an opportunity for showrunner Steven Moffatt to once again pair the Doctor with a companion who subverts expectations.
Vincent D'Onofrio may be most widely recognized as the detective with some unorthodox techniques on 'Law & Order: Criminal Intent,' but he's ready to branch out into more sinister roles in playing the Kingpin in Marvel's 'Daredevil' Netflix series and, reportedly, a villain in 'Jurassic Park 4.' As the actor reminded me, he was known for his many bad-guy characters in his earlier career (for one, see 'Men in Black'), though newer generations will become acclimated with his darker side.
